Modern Pawnshop in Hua Tha Le area

I drove to Hua Tha Le area some days ago. While I was stuck in traffic, this place really catch my eye. I've never seen any pawnshop that look modern like this. Old style pawnshops I usually see can't look inside to see what they're doing. There're 2 doors, enter and exit. It's sort of a place some or most people feel embarrassed to go. But this one looks so modern and open for anyone to see what's going on inside.

Ar-E BBQ and Buffet

Ar-E BBQ and Buffet is still one popular restaurant on Suebsiri road. 169 Baht per person, wide range of buffet menu, seafood, BBQ, salad, sweet etc. There's some live music in the evening. Go there early, the restaurant get busy very quick. I find out that it s rather too noisy this time for me. If you love peace and quiet, relaxing dinner, this place is really not suit you.
